The egg shaped wooden structure floating in the water pictured alongside is an energy efficient self-sustaining work space which has been designed especially for artist Stephen Turner. For a period of one year, the pod will be the artist’s residence where he will be studying the life of tidal creeks and threats of global warming and erosions.
Touted Exbury Egg, the floating work place located on the Exbury side of the Beaulieu River, UK is a collaborative project between PAD studio, the SPUD group and artist Stephen Turner.
The 20 feet long and nine feet wide Exbury Egg floating wooden work place is crafted by local craftsmen using ancient boat building techniques. Local materials like molded plywood and timber has been used for the construction.
The interior features basic essentials such as a bed, desk, small stove and a wet room. During his research and study work, virtual visitors will be able to follow Stephen’s journey and engage with him through a life link and webcam.
